NYC Missions Trip – Day 1

Monday, July 25, 2005

Greetings, all.

Today has been a very filled day: sightseeing in the morning, piano-playing in the afternoon, spaghetti at night. Apart from recuperating from the long drive up here, we’ve managed just fine. The facility we’re staying in is magnificent, a tall building fully equipped with kitchens, sleeping quarters, and computer access.

This morning, I went for the first time to Grand Central Station and rode the metro there. We went to a Chinese restaurant directly and picked up some rice and chicken, which brings me to my next topic for today… the food. On this trip thus far, they’ve filled me with more food than I could normally consume:

  • Two foot-long subs, of varying contents including pepperoni
  • A genuine Philly Cheesesteak, complete with mushrooms
  • Blueberry bagels and cream cheese
  • A full bag of Gummi Bears of which 3/4 were red

This afternoon, we ministered on the hub, an incredibly busy streetway, handing out tracts, singing, and playing on a great 64-key piano provided by our hosts. We returned to the lodge packed tight as sardines in a fifteen passenger van… all seventeen of us. The group was weary but happy at what God is doing for us.

Well, I think I’ve wasted enough bandwidth for today. More tomorrow if time permits.

The quote for today: “Unless you’re in Philly, it’s not a true cheesesteak.”
